TODAY'S COMMAND TO OBEY:
Today, we're meditating on how to obey the command of Jesus in Matthew 5:28-30, where Jesus says, "But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29 If your right eye causes you to stumble, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. 30 And if your right hand causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell."
How can a Christian truly keep this command? I taught about how to obey the command not to lust it in yesterday's video. Today, let's spend the time necessary to meditate on this command allow the Holy Spirit to transform our mindset through repentance.
Check in with your discipleship mentor.
Take 1 minute & check in with your mentor – even on this tough topic. As a former porn addict, I can tell you that this is a tough one, but victory
is possible... but I never found healing consistently until I got honest. “Confess your sins to one another... that you may be healed.” (James 5:16) Trust me... but mostly, trust God. ~ Darrell
Pastor, does your church need a clear discipleship strategy?
If you're a pastor who cares about new believer discipleship, and you'd like to get a copy of the NewStart Discipleship tools that work for smaller churches, you can get a license to print as many copies as you need.
Only 8% of pastors surveyed by George Barna say, "My church is doing very well at discipling new and young believers." Less than 1 in 10! If you don't have a solid discipleship plan, it doesn't have to be that way! You can get one today.
NewStart also includes a license to print the workbook for Obedience Challenge: 90 Days to Obey Jesus.
